July 2014 If you like this pattern, you may also want to check out my Candle Flame Shawl ; a beautiful crescent-shaped shawl with a lace edging and i-cord edge.

I used all 360 yards of the Madeline Tosh Pashima and my scarf is 62 inches long. If you are substituting a different DK weight yarn which runs a little shorter you will end up with a shorter scarf, which is fine. This pattern is versatile and you can use any weight yarn in any length. I came up with the pattern, because I like the way the lace looks different but equally intriguing on both sides. I hope you enjoy my pattern.

Someone recently asked how to make this shawl wider. Here is my answer for everyone’s benefit:
The pattern repeat is over 12 stitches of the original CO stitches and each repeat adds about 2 1/2 inches. So for every 2 1/2 inches of added width add 12 stitches to your CO. Let’s say you want your shawl to be approximately 24 inches wide instead of 8 1/2 inches you would add six lace repeats for a total of nine lace repeats and cast on 9 x 12 + 6 stitches = 114 stitches.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
I am happy you choose my design. Enjoy!
